), mentioned by Ptolemy (2.2.10
) as one of the inland
towns of Ireland, the others being Rhigia, Rhaeba, Laberus, Macolicum, another Rhaeba, Dunum. Of these, Dunum has been identified with Down,
and Macolicum with Mallow,

in West Meath.
Ivernus is identified by O´Connor with Dun-keron,
on the Kenmare
river; but the grounds on which this has been done are unstated.
